Malappuram: In to the controversial Edapal theatre child abuse case, it has been decided to withdraw the case charged against the theatre owner who helped to bring to light the child abuse.
The theatre owner Satheesan will be made the key witness in the case.
The new twist in the tail happened in the case after the state police chief Loknath Behera had sought the legal advice from the Director of Prosecution Manjeri Sreedharan Nair.
The Director of Prosecution advised the DGP that Satheesan had not attempted to conceal or destroy the evidence so no case will stand against him and also pointed out that there were no deliberate lapses on the part of the theatre owner in informing the incident to the authorities. Hence the criminal case will not persist against him.
